“No: I shall not marry Samuel Fawthrop Wynne."

"I ask why? I must have a reason. In all respects he is more than worthy of you."

Charlotte Brontë, Shirley

Mary Jo Putney
“Winning her would be like coaxing a butterfly to land on his hand. Patience, gentleness, and perhaps a prayer or two would be required.”
Mary Jo Putney, The Bargain

William Shakespeare
“Wooing, wedding, and repenting is as a Scotch jig, a measure, and a cinque-pace: the first suit is hot and hasty like a Scotch jig--and full as fantastical; the wedding, mannerly modest, as a measure, full of state and ancientry; and then comes repentance and with his bad legs falls into the cinque-pace faster and faster, till he sink into his grave.”
William Shakespeare, Much Ado About Nothing

Lynn Kurland
“What is wrong with the [tale of] Two Swords?" he asked, even more surprised. "Don't you care for it?"
"There is too bloody much romance in it," she said curtly.
Ah, well, here was the crux of it, apparently. "Don't you like romance?" he ventured.
She looked as though she were trying to decide if she should weep or, as he had earlier predicted, stick him with whatever blade she could lay her, hand on. "I don't know," she said briskly.
"I see," he said, though he didn't. He wished, absently, that he'd had at least one sister. He was very well versed in what constituted courtly behavior and appropriate formal wooing practices, thanks to his father's insistence on many such lectures delivered by a dour man whose only acquaintance with women had likely come from reading about them in a book, but he had absolutely no idea how to proceed with a woman whose first instinct when faced with something that made her uncomfortable was to draw her sword.
...
"I'll stop provoking you, but I will have the answer to a question. Why do you think most men woo?"
"Because they have no sword skill and need something with which to occupy their time?”
Lynn Kurland, The Mage's Daughter

Dan Pearce
“Certain girls deserve lots of flowers. You are one of them.”
Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

“The vampire could woo any woman with his charisma and his charm, but he only wishes to romance her.. for eternity.”
Mr. Depravity

Anna Godbersen
“It is well known that a man, when wooing a lady to be his wife, must first win over the females she most confides in—her friends, of course, and her sister, if she has one.”
Anna Godbersen, The Luxe

William Shakespeare
“He will fence with his own shadow.”
William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

Robin Hobb
“I'll never miss a chance to remind you of what a brat you were. A gloriously beautiful and very spoiled brat. I was utterly charmed by your complete self-absorption. It was rather like courting a cat.”
Robin Hobb, City of Dragons

Angela  Armstrong
“Rational Self was screaming, “This is crazy! Abort before she lets you down easy!” But Hopeful Tama wanted to go all in; wanted to trust what he was feeling and see the wooing through. Hopeful Tama won.”
Angela Armstrong, Missive
